Graph Theory Applications to Deregulated Power Systems
This book provides a detailed description of network science concepts applied to power systems and electricity markets, offering an appropriate blend of theoretical background and practical applications for operation and power system planning. It discusses an approach to understanding power systems from a network science perspective using the direct recognition of the interconnectivity provided by the transmission system. Further, it explores the network properties in detail and characterizes them as a tool for online and offline applications for power system operation. The book includes an in-depth explanation of electricity markets problems that can be addressed from a graph theory perspective. It is intended for advanced undergraduate and graduate students in the fields of electric energy systems, operations research, management science and economics. Practitioners in the electric energy sector also benefit from the concepts and techniques presented here.
